A pool house can make your backyard feel like a luxurious resort. There are a number of ways that you can use the space. You can customize your pool house to match the overall theme of your backyard. A builder will work with you to make your vision a reality. Here are a few ways pool houses are fun and functional:
A Pool House is Great for Storage
Owning a pool means using lots of tools to keep it clean. You can easily store nets, chemicals, pool toys, and more in a pool house to keep them out of sight and away from weather damage. Pool houses are also useful for storing outdoor furniture in case of a storm or flood.
ProTip: When building your pool house, consider adding special shelves or cabinets to store extra cleaning supplies or towels.
Serves as a Convenient Changing Room
Rather than your guests entering your home after a fun swim– dripping wet and ready to change, your pool house serves as a changing area instead. You’ll be glad you don’t have to dry your floors or risk someone slipping in your home. Pool houses can be carpeted to absorb water and prevent wet feet from slipping. Add an outdoor shower so it’s easy to rinse off before getting in and out of the water.
Can Be Used as a Guest House
Pool houses are great for entertaining friends and family. Use the space for a guest house complete with a mini kitchen, bed or futon. A small bathroom would be useful for anyone using your pool. You can add a mini fridge for easy access to snacks and beverages without having to go inside your home! Your guests will also appreciate the privacy of a separate space if they will be staying overnight.
